Transformers (2007)

Trivia: The "changing sound" that is familiar to all Transformers fans from the TV show, was added to the movie despite opposition from Michael Bay, who wanted a more "robotic" sounding transformation. Hasbro would not license the film unless the director at least stayed true to this one aspect of the TV franchise.

Smokin' Aces (2006)

Continuity mistake: When the police rush into the bathroom towards the end of the movie to capture Sir Ivy, you'll see that as they start to lift him up his left eye is completely covered in blood but when they lead him out of the room is eye is open with way less blood than before.

Factual error: When Chris, and his son go to (at the time) Candlestick Park, home of the San Fransico 49ers, you can plainly see both when he is outside of the stadium talking to guys in the parking lot and when he's in the 'suite box' trying to get the guy to do business with him that all of the logos for the 49ers are from this time period. This is a huge mistake considering this movie was set in the early 80's whereas the 49ers did not begin to use black in their uniforms again until the earliest being in 1994 for the NFL's 75th Anniversary, which was the last year they won a Super Bowl, defeating the San Diego Chargers. The team didn't go to 'black' as a primary color in their scheme until 1996 when they added the black outline around their logo (which you see on the walls outside the stadium and on the field as you see the team playing) and by also adding it to their trademark sleeve stripes and around the their numbers which were given a drop shadow style as homage to the '94 year uniforms. They did however wear the correct 'era' uniforms which would be considered a 'throwback' uniform by today's standards.

Deliberate mistake: When Jay and Mooj are arguing over the commission from the sale that Mooj just made from the girl, between scenes Mooj's hair goes from parts of it standing up on his head to laying perfectly combed flat.

Trading Places (1983)

Audio problem: When Valentine, and Winthorpe, are sitting in the living room you hear them talking but you can barely hear the TV. But as soon as Clarence Beaks' name is mentioned on the TV, all of a sudden the volume goes up without anyone touching a button. (01:25:20)

Down Periscope (1996)

Trivia: In the scene when Lauren Holly, gives Kelsey Grammer, a kiss, her hitting her elbow was not in the original script. She really did hit her "funny bone" before walking off camera. The director had decided to keep it in the movie so they had to film an alternate shot of Grammer, laughing when it happened.

Question: Is that stimulator thing that Jack Nicholson uses on his head when he comes out of the shower a real gadget that you can buy somewhere or was it just made for the movie? If you it is real does anyone know where I could buy one?

Rollin Garcia Jr

Chosen answer: It's called a Violet Wand, and MANY years ago they were claimed to be an electrical cure-all for any ailment (along with Coca Cola extending your life-span etc). These days they're used for other purposes, I am sure any decent Adult retailer can supply you with one. Probably get one on ebay.

Rocky IV (1985)

Trivia: Sylvester Stallone, actually tore a muscle in his heart while filming the training sequence in which he lifts the sleigh that everybody was sitting in. Filming had to stop for two months so doctors could make sure that he healed properly and the chances for him having a heart attack would be reduced.

Rocky IV (1985)

Trivia: Some of the scenes during the fight with Drago were real. During the filming Dolph Lundgren (Drago) broke three of Sylvester Stallone's ribs while shooting the final fight scene.

Revealing mistake: When Bill and Ted, are playing Battleship, with Death, you can see at the bottom of Death's neck where the crease is of the cap that is covering the actors head to make it look bald.

Rollin Garcia Jr

Continuity mistake: When Bill, Ted, Death and Station, come back from heaven you can see when Death, falls to the ground that he is wearing black sneakers. Up until this point in the movie, he had been barefoot.

Rollin Garcia Jr

Continuity mistake: When Death, falls to the ground when everyone gets back from heaven, when he's laying there his robe is covered in dirt from the desert ground. However, when he stands up and the scene cuts back and forth, there is no dirt on the front of his robe.

Over The Top (1987)

Trivia: The punch that Bull Hurley gave Hawk during the final match that made his nose bleed was real. Stallone told the guy to do it since he was the director but didn't give him a "cue point" in which to do it. Meaning Stallone never knew when it was going to happen so that his reaction would be authentic to the hit. Stallone stated that he took more punishment in trying to be authentic in this movie by taking actual hits such as this one and arm-wrestling professionals that were hired for the film, than he did in any of the Rocky movies.

Over The Top (1987)

Trivia: To make the movie seem as authentic as possible, Stallone told the guy playing Bull not to take it easy on him when it was time for them to shoot the final scene of their match together. The guy laughed about the idea but still agreed to do so even though he warned Stallone that he may hurt him. Stallone, made him eat those words when he beat him for real. Everything in that scene is authentic except for close-up shots of their face that were done later due to injuries that both men suffered while the scene was being filmed. Stallone suffered a strained forearm while Bull Hurley's character suffered a dislocated shoulder. The cry from him that you can hear when Stallone is pulling his arm down at the end is the real thing. That's when it happened.

General questions

I am trying to find out the name of a cartoon that used to come on back in the 80's about a guy who had the powers of animals. I think he was a sheriff in the show and his rival was a old skeleton looking dude in all black. I think it took place like in the desert although I could be wrong about that but his power as far as I can remember came from a bear, a hawk, and I think a cheetah or something?

Rollin Garcia Jr

Chosen answer: You are probably thinking of "BraveStarr". It was a sci-fi cartoon where he was the marshal of an outlaw planet called New Texas during a "goldrush" (although what they were searching for was a stuff called kerium, not gold). Bravestarr could call upon different animal totems to get the eyesight of a hawk, the strength of a bear, speed of a puma or hearing of a wolf.

Twotall

Revealing mistake: Right after the explosion, when Simon walks up to a detective and introduces himself as an adjuster for the bank, he asks if the detective can show him the way down. When the detective says yes he calls over an officer Murphy, who is facing the crowd. Murphy is already looking back and begins to walk to the detective before he is even called for.

Most Wanted (1997)

Trivia: In the last scene where Dunn, is watching the TV in the store window and he looks over and says to the guy standing next to him, "Hey, you look just like that guy", it is actually his stunt double.

Spider-Man (2002)

Other mistake: There is no way possible that MJ, would have been able to fall from the height that she fell from while being knocked from Spider-Man's grasp onto the edge of that cable car during the bridge scene. It's hard enough to believe that she would be able to withstand the force of being knocked around in circles while holding onto a web much less landing directly onto the edge of a cable car.
